WASP Builder - Wasp Input File Builder

WASP Builder illustrates river reach segments and exchanges between layers that are linked to parameter groups. It also simplifies the creation and modification of WASP parameter groups. It connects the parameter groups to this visual display.

It is a Windows 95/98/NT tool to build input files for EPA`s WASP 5 water quality modeling program which supports, metal transport, nutrients, toxicity, river, and contaminant transport modeling.

WASP Builder is currently under development and maintained by the Integrated Decision Support Group (IDS) at Colorado State University. This software was made possible by funding from the USDI Bureau of Reclamation (USBR) and the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Please send an email to Dave Patterson if you find any bugs or have any comments.
